    I have a Sony handycam HC-26. Looking at the Sony site, none of their cameras will work with Vista 64 via USB. Their camera software will not work with Vista 64 either. You can connect the camera via firewire (DV or iLINK) connection but will have to use video editing software that came with the computer or one that is Vista certified. Mine connects via firewire fine, but I get a blue screen when transferring video. Any solutions for that out there???

I can't capture my videos from my sony digital8 cam. any solution for this problem?

Posted on Sep 01, 2008

Hi, unfortunately I had this same problem so I went to Sony's website to look for a solution. Unfortunately it seems that their HandyCam's aren't compatible with Window's Vista Home Premium, and there doesn't look like there's going to be a fix. Sadly, you're camera is now a paperweight :(. I too am looking for a new budget-camera to replace my handycam that works with Vista, but it's a challenge!

A) Fixya does nor supply software, drivers or hardware of any kind - these must be obtained via official channels.

B) An unsupported OS is highly unlikely to have drivers available.
